The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers will be playing tonight at the Henry Fonda Music Box | Picture by Crackerfarm via the Avett Brothers' Myspace

Our Pick: The Avett Brothers, Magnolia Electric Company @ Henry Fonda Music Box (Tickets available at the door only; Box office sold-out)

Tonight Philadelphia-based Grammy Award-winning hip hop band the Roots will be taking part in the predominantly electronic, fledgling music festival Audiotistic, which takes place at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino. Sussex-based pop rockers Keane are poised to headline the Hollywood Palladium. NY's own faux French indie rockers Nous Non Plus (LAist Interview) will be gracing Spaceland. And, lastly, local noise/punk outfit Mika Miko (LAist Review) will be ringing in their debut album at the Smell with none other than the Soft Pack. Although we recommend attending the aforementioned show, we strongly suggest heading over to the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch North Carolina's crown jewel: bluegrass-infused folk rockers the Avett Brothers. Chicago-based lo-fi/alt-country outfit Magnolia Electric Co. are slated to kick things off.
